THE PROJECT

I have written an instrumental album (listen to the demo version here: ProfessorSerious.com) that incorporates progressive heavy metal with world music elements (such as Didgeridoo, Violin, Sitar, Percussion, etc); offering a different flavor of metal that blends old- and new-world styles.

MY GOALS

My goal is to sell this album on websites like Amazon and itunes; and broadcast songs from it on services like Pandora, Grooveshark, and Spotify. And by doing so, influence and inspire others with my music.

WHY I NEED YOUR SUPPORT

I am currently looking for $750 of kickstarter funding for duplication, packaging, marketing, and distribution. I need your help to make this possible!

I plan on using CDBABY and I'd like to make at least 300 physical copies of the album. Ideally, I would love to make 500-1000 copies.

REWARDS

Rewards are based on the pledge selected. The rewards that I am offering are the album (standard release, pre-release, autographed), download of an unreleased song, print your name in my CD credits, didgeridoo or guitar lessons on Skype, and MORE!

Pledges have different minimums, however each pledge can be up to $10,000!

WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW

Album tracks are currently being recorded and expected for release sometime in May 2012.

Currently all the demo and scratch tracks can be found at ProfessorSerious.com

I performed on KRZA 88.7FM on Saturday March 3rd from 1 to 3PM! Later that night, I ran live-sound for a local open mic, it was the biggest we had ever seen, definitely over-capacity! It's a great opportunity to play live and promote my album, website, ...and now this kickstarter page!
